Where: Menen, Belgium
When: Period between August 1st and September 30th, 2018

De Figuranten is an art-organisation located in Menen. We do research, create and present artistic work in dialogue with the most vulnerable people in society: theatre, dance, fine arts, photography, video,… Our mission is to unite (guest)artists and people with a social vulnerability in a way which is interesting for both parties and leads to high-quality artistic work.
Next, to our regular activities, we want to share our workspace and give (young) artists the opportunity to research, create and present in our studio in Menen. We are also looking forward to meeting new artists with a possible co-operation in the future in mind.

Artists who work in the field of performing arts (theatre, performance, dance,…) with a strong idea and a willingness to share their work with a (local) audience and the performers of De Figuranten.
